21-årigt stortalent aktuel i nyt drama

" Den 21-årige skuespiller Lucas Hedges har travlt med at imponere anmelderne. Han begyndte sin karriere i Wes Andersons Moonrise Kingdom fra 2012, og siden har han bl.a. spillet med i ”Manchester by the Sea” fra 2016, hvor hvilken han blev nomineret til en Oscar for bedste mandlige birolle. Nu er han aktuel i endnu et stærkt drama, nemlig Joel Edgertons ”Boy Erased”. Filmen bygger på Garrard Conleys memoir af same navn fra 2016, og handler om teenagedreng fra en meget kristent hjem, som bliver sent på omvendelseslejr, da hans forældre finder ud af, at han måske er homoseksuel. Hedges spiller filmens hovedrolle mens hans forældre bliver spillet af ingen ringere end Nicole Kidman og Russel Crowe. Edgerton har selv udtalt om filmen, at filmens handling er langt mere kompliceret end den sort-hvide fordømmelse, som man måske kunne forestille sig, og at han særligt har lagt vægt på at skildre forældrenes kærlighed til deres barn.

Boy Erased

Jared Eamons is the 19-year old son of Marshall Eamons (Russell Crowe), a Baptist preacher, and Nancy Eamons (Nicole Kidman), a hairdresser. The boy breaks with his girlfriend when he realizes a truth about himself - he is not sexually attracted to girls. Soon after that, Jared is forced to enter into a gay conversion therapy program, named "Love In Action”. He meets therapist Victor Sykes (Joel Edgerton) who tells the group of gay boys that their sexuality is a fault of their families. Jared’s mother moves to a motel where she stays with her son until he completes the program. However, Jared soon discovers that it’s not clear when this therapy ends and that he may have to move into an on-campus house. The film is based on a 2016 autobiographical novel of the same name by Garrard Conley.
